Subject: Re: Taking Naps?

Forum: Taking Naps?
naps are my favorite activity!

I absolutely hate it at the same time. I end up sleeping too long or ending up feeling worse. Sometimes, though, its necessary. Its a battle i have been working on for years. I guess with depression and anxiety mixed together really make it difficult for me to stay awake. ugh! but im getting there.

I tried coffee and red bull but it got to addictive and it might have sent me to the hospital because i ended up having to pass a really painful kidney stone. to this day i havent been able to touch a red bull and i have drank coffee a hand full of times since then.

I wish i could figure it out but only time will telll hopefully i can get into a healthier routine and eat better. maybe b12 vitamins.

Subject: Fishing for Catfish?

Forum: Fishing for Catfish?
good day!

In todays word many of us have tried to use an online dating platform. as for me I occasionally swipe left, left, right, etc. Not much of success..yet.

Last night I stumbled upon a match, but the one picture he had was odd. only one picture?! and this picture was someone who looked so familiar ~ someone youtube famous might i add. I asked for another picture or two to confirm if it was him. long story short I found out it was someone completely different.. it was a catfish!

I would of wanted to get to know him more if he didn't try to be someone else. I honestly didn't understand why he did it but my trust was already out the door from that guy who seemed pretty cool.

I've heard stories from friends being catfished.

what are your thoughts on situations like these? have you been catfished? what was your story? what makes you think people do this?

Forum: What do you miss about being a kid?
hello!
This is an great forum topic.

Growing up and becoming an adult is definitely a life altering experience. I miss everything about it. I miss the freedom of creativity and mystery I had of the world. I remember nature and being outside- feeling so small. I thought the sky was so blue and the clouds where so huge as I would lie on the grass and look up, feeling the breeze on my body. I didn't care much for the dirty. I wasn't worried about the germs or even concerned much about all the bugs. I had a raspberry tree in my neighbors yard and Its branches would hangout into our yard. Every once in a while I would snack on one or two. I will never forget how good those raspberries tasted. I will also never forgive that neighbor for taking down the tree years later. because of her I was never able to enjoy the freshness of those raspberries again (haha).

Another one of my favorite memories was when I was aloud to walk home for lunch in elementary school. I would visit my mom for lunch at the house and help her with her daycare. This was a very special memory for me because I didn't have a lot of friends growing up, and I was close to my mom. Sometimes I'm grateful I didn't have a lot of friends because I was able to make more memories with my mom.

Forum: Could you downsize and live in a "Tiny House"?
Honestly, i would love to live in a tiny home -If I had the funds of course.

as a child I always dreamed of having a tiny play house. There was a little store a few blocks from my house and I would always dream to have that exact pink painted house that I would occasionally pass by for years. This small home was not fit to live in though but was so realistic.

When I first heard about the tiny homes and that they were livable. I was totally interested.

Its almost like a like a motorhome but without the engine to drive around and explore. Now the real question is would I want a moterhome or a tiny home!

Subject: Re: Stimulation of The Intellectual Sort

Forum: Stimulation of The Intellectual Sort
Do you like to feel intellectually challenged?
Yes, how could people not. For me, its almost like an addiction now. A healthy one! I love that fact my mind can exceed to higher levels of knowledge that I couldn't think possible. Im still in awh that im considered a decent student. My favorite thing to challenge myself in is art. there's so much that goes into it. Who would of known that you can color something without black as a shading technique, and that there is so many different styles that you categories as art. like, having a giant ice cream cone on top of a building in Cologne, Germany by Claes Oldenbur.

How often?
Every chance i get, it is crazy to know that you can always learn something new.

Outside of academics, where do you seek this challenge or intellectual stimulation?
how to help my family and friends in ways that will make there life easier or help them with what know. To work with people and my pets. AND Cnet.

Subject: university accidentally sends 800 admittanceletter

Forum: university accidentally sends 800 admittanceletter
Okay, so here it is. This is a topic that i feel many of us could feel strongly by.



http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/02/18/carnegie-mellon-university-accidentally-sends-800-students-admittance-letters/?intcmp=latestnews




I feel bad for these students having a false feeling of hope. I understand that we make mistakes, but 800 mistakes? ok, maybe they sent the letters all at once, but I don't think i could handle the false excitement so lightly.

how would you feel?

what would you do?

how would you tell you family and friends about the news?

what are your opinions on this topic?

Subject: Re: Issues on Cnet- Why or Why not?

Forum: Issues on Cnet- Why or Why not?
Im three weeks new here.. and im trying to learn how this site works. I have noticed that there's not a lot of forums about issues that are on the news or that is a big issue within society. I was reading everyone's answers on here and i can agree with all of them. sometimes ill post something important and no one really reply's, but when i post forums on the opinions of others, mentally, personally, or what not, i get more responses.

Maybe everyone needs a break from other topics. Sometimes writhing about the same issues can be tiring if you already discussed it. i don't really have time to read the news and joining this site makes me want to because i realize its important to know what's going on in this world. also, i usually talk about those stuff in class. we are actually learning about ethical issues a little later in the semester that i hope to discuss with all of you.

Just last night was searching for a topic from the news, so its coming soon. Im trying to find something new that never comes to mind. i think we need to get creative.

Subject: Re: How do you decide when to take a break?

Forum: How do you decide when to take a break?
I usually take breaks when ever I feel my mind starts to wonder. Sometimes its a lot, sometimes its never. when I do go on break, I usually could go between 10-20 minutes, then I want to go back to studying. It helps if i go out to do my homework, or drink tea or coffee. i also do like to be up late because i don't want to get tired in class.

Subject: Re: Shopping: Store VS Online... Which is Better?

Forum: Shopping: Store VS Online... Which is Better?
Do you like shopping?
yes, I love getting something new every once in a while, but due to the fact that I don't have a car anymore, I have to save up.

but I would buy yoga pants, makeup, body spray, and lip gloss.
Have you tried online shopping?
I don't think I could ever shop online. im always afraid of getting the wrong size and then having to return them. seems complicated.

Any problems?
yes, yoga pants are too expensive. Im looking for a new place to get my clothing so if anyone has any suggestions..lol

Subject: Re: What lifts your spirits?

Forum: What lifts your spirits?
What do you do to lift your spirits?
I like to draw or talk to a close friend or family member. I try to find something relaxing or funny to do. like a cup of coffee or a funny game like apple to apple or mad libs. Also, talking on here helps because connecting with others and discussing issues or topics that I can relate to, widens my mental perspective. I can sense some great Cnet friends. It just sucks that we can only post five times per day.

yes, my cat lifts my spirit too. His name is Abe and he follows me everywhere in the house. he purrs when ever I look at him. I rescued him when he was a kitten. so, I think he claimed me as his mom.
